What Happened To Jicho Pevu? It's Not As Good As It Used To Be

Jicho Pevu is no longer interesting. Not even close. It seems that Moha is no longer interested in giving the public thorough investigative pieces anymore. The last two episodes have been half cooked and full of open bloopers. We can all get the sense that he’s just talking smart but not telling us anything.  So what is the problem? Is his interest in politics clouding his journalistic prowess? Is he past his prime?

The most recent chapter felt deliberately baffling. More than that: It was boring. We hoped for more but only got less.  Everything was painfully slow, stringing us along from one far-flung locale to another with the promise that something’s going to happen, soon,so soon, and oh, how crazy it will be when it does, just you wait!


Lately, viewers have complained that the show has too many plates spinning in the air — too many suggestions and conspiracy theories that are never fully delved into. .For me, the bigger problem is that the show has spread itself between so many plots in so many different settings that each angle only gets a few minutes to advance. It takes so long for each plot to advance that the details start to become fuzzy.

A good investigative piece balances great storylines with intrigue, and right now Jicho Pevu  isn’t doing much of either. The series has been holding us on a knife-edge since Jacob Juma was murdered and we’re still poised on that brink of utter chaos with no solution in site. Moha is only giving hints as to what might have occurred but no concrete answers.. Honestly, when you’ve been made to sit in the same spot for so long, the view starts to look pretty dull.

We couldn’t help but ask ourselves, “Isn’t this guy scared of being hunted down? He must be the bravest human being ever”

We saw, with horror and fascination, the jeopardized Kenyan system through his sharp eyes as we waited fearfully to find out who the culprits of any major crime were.

There was daredevilry, powerful statements and lots of suspense – but most crucially there was an I Can't Stop Thinking About This Show level of drama. And that's why maybe it should have been wrapped up while it was still relevant. Maybe that way, it would have remained a perfectly formed and impactful piece of TV – but now, as key plots are dragged on and on, it's become diluted by repetitive storylines which are hard to truly care about.

Several years later  and the show feels flat and a little dull. There are no meaty details to keep the momentum going, nothing to fear and nobody to really invest in. In a way it's impressive that the show keeps going – but I'm worried it's not heading anywhere exciting. It’s just moving into a territory of desperate realms.

Do something Moha or pass on the torch to someone who can.


Revealed: Deputy president William Ruto office named as the most corrupt


Research firm Infotrak has rated the Office of the Deputy President  William Ruto as the most corrupt with 51 %

– It is  closely  followed by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s  office that scored  46.4% in the latest corruption index
Deputy president William Ruto office has been named as the most corrupt in the country,latest poll by research firm  Infotrak shows

The findings which were made public on Tuesday paints a gloomy image of transparency and integrity at DP’s office after topping the corruption radar with 51 %  closely followed by the Office of the President with 46.4%


The report further shows that 62% of Kenyan’s believes that Kenya is heading to the wrong  political direction with 55% alluding that that the country’s economy is not doing well.


The report brings out a big sarcasm given the office of the deputy president was allocated KSh 1.92 billion into the 2015-16 budget, a mockery on the lack of the state’s grasp on cutting down on public wastage

Nearly three years ago,President Uhuru Kenyatta admitted that corruption was rife in his office mostly in the procurement department with cartels within the presidency colluding with influential dealmakers to mint millions during the tendering process.The revelation comes a few days ago after it emerged that senior State house officials and a police officer had been arrested for demanding bribes from the visitors going to Statehouse.


President Uhuru Kenyatta has been on the forefront in most of condemning corruption in both private and public sector.

Police intercept 5kg of heroin valued at Sh15m along Nakuru-Nairobi highway, arrest two Kenyan women

Two Kenyan women were Friday arrested while trafficking five kilos of heroin from Kampala to Mombasa.



The first woman in her 50s identified as Elizabeth Akinyi Mboga was nabbed on Friday morning by Anti-Narcotics police in a sweeping operation by officers along Nakuru-Nairobi highway.

Elizabeth was arrested together with Ann Achieng Anyanga who had travelled to Kampala to bring the narcotics from Tanzania using Modern Coast Bus.

The duo was arrested by the officers after receiving a tip from flying squad officers based in Naivasha. Ann was arrested after detectives established that her travel documents indicated a suspicious travel pattern. She left the country in early August through Lunga Lunga border only to emerge Friday morning at Busia border point.

The detectives searched their belongings and discovered a carton full of plastic mops in which the narcotics were concealed in their hollow spaces.

According to a source who did not want to be named, Elizabeth has recruited many smugglers to travel to West African countries and Asian countries, many who were arrested and are facing life jail terms while others have been executed. Among the many arrested smugglers Emelda who was arrested in Nigeria and George who was arrested in Indonesia.

A confidant also disclosed that Elizabeth worked for Nigerians many who are based in Nigeria, Ghana and Tanzania.



She previously smuggled drugs to various countries and was at some point arrested in Pakistan while in possession of drugs. Elizabeth continues to target economically challenged persons in the society and convince them to do the drug runs at a small fee while she pockets the big share of the profits.

It also emerged that about 15 members of Uganda Cranes Football team were aboard the bus headed for a football match against Harambee Stars in Kenya.

One of the players who did not want to be mentioned said he was saddened by the delay that occurred as the two who were being pursued but was happy about the arrest.

While confirming the incident, Head of Anti-Narcotics Unit Hamisi Massa said that the arrest was a major breakthrough in stopping trans-border narcotic trafficking.

Cases of drug trafficking have been on the rise in the country even as most traffickers avoid the mainly used routes in their business. Police say they now use roads as opposed to airports to carry out their business. The most commonly trafficked narcotics from Tanzania and through Uganda is heroin. Cocaine is also trafficked from the two countries. Kenya made the second biggest seizure last month and arrested two suspects who were linked to the 100 kilograms of cocaine valued at Sh598 million disguised as sugar.

The suspects including a Briton were released by the courts and ordered to deposit Sh70 million with similar surety to secure their freedom.



The US government has complained some drugs seized in their country originate Kenya and called for action to stop the trend.

US secretary of states John Kerry arrives in Nairobi on Sunday evening on August 21 and is expected to among other issues discuss the issue of drugs, electoral reforms, South Sudan crisis and Somalia.
